Finish Costumes | 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Trunk or Treat | 4 - 7 p.m. in parking lot

For some children who use a wheelchair, dressing up in a costume and trick-or-treating in their neighborhood can be a challenge.  Traditional Halloween costumes often don't fit and the physical inaccessibility of neighborhoods leaves many children with disabilities home on that magical night. The Wheelchair Costume Workshop enables these children to have their dream costume specially designed just for them. Once the costumes are created, an inclusive trunk-or-treat event will be held for the children, their siblings and the public at Mt. Zion Church in Bel Air.

Registration for participants is now closed, but please register to volunteer below:
